Cat Blackard (fka Cap Blackard) is a multimedia artist known for her work as a writer, podcast host, graphic artist and actor. She's series creator and co-author of The Call of Cthulhu Mystery Program, the award-winning horror comedy audio drama, and Lightning Dogs, an animated series inspired by classic 80s cartoons. She's the founder of the multimedia storytelling company, Omniverse, as well as The Nerdy Show Network - the longest-running geek podcast collective. Blackard's podcasting career began 2009 with her co-founding of the series Nerdy Show and Dungeons & Doritos - launching what would become The Nerdy Show Network. Dungeons & Doritos would be her first major acting roles as both the sensationally sensual dragonborn, Jamela, and the senile wizard narrator, Galdap. That series evolved into the programming that Blackard would become best known for: improvised audio dramas, particularly "RPG Audio Dramas" - live tabletop roleplaying turned into immersive cinematic narratives. Her work as a performer and storyteller continues as she experiments with new varieties of improvisational narrative in her own work and beyond. As Art Director for Consequence of Sound from 2008-2019, Blackard created a body of pop culture illustration, paintings, and multimedia art alongside in-depth articles and interviews. She later went on to launch Consequence Podcast Network as its director, producing series such as The Opus in collaboration with Sony. Her career as a media journalist and speaker is filled with humorous and in-depth discussions on-camera, on-stage, and in the studio with notable personalities and innovators such as Dan Aykroyd, Phil Collins, Janelle Monáe, Reggie Watts, Eric André, 'Weird Al' Yankovic, Barry Levinson, David Byrne, Chelsea Manning and many more.
